Submit a Paper

Paper submissions are accepted starting December 1st, 2016. Submission deadline is Friday, February 10, 2017. The submission deadline has now passed and the submission system is closed.

Please review the Call for Papers before submitting a paper. In particular, please take note of the requirement for the length of the abstract (250 words), the rule against presenting more than one paper per author, and the submission deadline.

When you are ready to submit a paper, log in to your my.economics.ca account with your username and password, and click on the "Conference Papers" button in the menu on the left. If you are not yet in our CEA database, you can either become a CEA member first, or you can create a non-member account.

Before you can submit a paper through our online system, you may be prompted to complete missing personal information in your profile. In this case, please click on the "Profile" button and provide the missing information (such as a missing e-mail address). Then return to the "Conference Papers" page.

CEA Response to U.S. Executive Order:

The Canadian Economics Association is aware that that some members of the Canadian economic profession have been seriously impacted by the recent U.S. executive order barring citizens from seven Muslim-majority countries from entering the United States. For example, some students will not be able to consider job market prospects at U.S. universities or conduct research in the U.S. during the ban. Members of the CEA Executive Council have been discussing measures that the Association can take to help ease the stress brought on by this action. Regarding the upcoming CEA conference, we will make the following two changes:

  1. For international scholars who have been affected by the executive order, the deadline to submit papers to the 2017 CEA meetings in Antigonish, Nova Scotia, will be extended until February 17, 2017. (In order to submit a paper contact Paula Emery at cea.conference@gmail.com)
  2. People who are unable to leave the US because of the executive order will be able to present and discuss papers at the 2017 CEA meetings via Skype.

Also, the CEA is happy to distribute information, through its email network and website, on any initiatives that individual departments or universities are taking in response to this situation, for example, extending application deadlines. To submit a message, please contact Vivian Tran at cea.execdir@gmail.com.

We realize these are only small measures at this time but we will continue to discuss other ways to ease this unexpected burden to some of our members from this executive order. Thank you.

When papers are accepted or rejected, the author who submitted the paper will be notified through a computer-generated e-mail message. This is the only confirmation you will receive. You can check on your paper's status anytime through the link embedded in your original submission acknowledgment e-mail. Specifically, the CEA will not provide any formal invitation letters to paper presenters. For conference participants from outside North America, if you require documentation of your conference attendance for visa purposes, present the paper acceptance e-mail to a Canadian consulate and request that they contact the CEA Program Office (see conference home page) if they require confirmation.

Authors are encouraged to provide web access to their conference papers using PDF files.

Link Up Your Conference Paper

If you have a PDF file of your conference paper that you wish to make public, you can either host this file on the CEA's economics.ca server or provide a link (URL) to that PDF file on your own web server. Either way, first you need to log in to your CEA account on my.economics.ca (using your CEA account number and password). Next, click on the "Conference Papers" item in the menu bar on the left of the screen; this will display your conference paper registration for the 2017 conference. At the bottom of the page is a section "Actions" where you can either upload a PDF file to the economics.ca server using the "Choose File" button or enter a URL (complete with http://..../...pdf) to the PDF file hosted elsewhere. Then click "Go!" to complete the file upload or URL registration. Once a link or PDF file has been provided, it will appear in the preliminary conference programme the next day. Our preliminary conference programme is updated only once a day.
